VI Mitigation

Certain chemicals found in contaminated soil or groundwater can seep into your home or business. Typically, this is a particular form of vapor intrusion (VI) that occurs in the basement or foundation slabs of the building. As cracks form in the foundation, hazardous vapors can exude through, exposing occupants to health hazards caused by these chemical agents.

Know What VI Mitigation in Piedmont, Alabama, Involves

There are three phases through which VI mitigation ensures maximum protection. First, we’ll close off the access points that vapors can use to get into the building by sealing cracks and openings around plumbing pipes and electrical wiring. We’ll also add a layer of concrete over any dirt floors if your basement isn’t finished.

Second, we’ll add the vapor barrier, which consists of geomembrane sheeting. The barrier is best installed during the construction phase, but we can always add it to an existing building’s foundation.

Finally, passive venting gets installed beneath the building, which is necessary to give the vapors exit points so that their fumes don’t build up beneath the building. Like the installation of the vapor barrier, passive venting is another step that is best done with a new construction, though we can modify it for your existing home or business.
